by the name of mitt romney vote -- they said that bill clinton's plan would hurt the economy and kill jobs. does that sound familiar? that's what they said. it turns out their math was just as bad back then as it is now. because -- because by the end of bill clinton's second term, america had created 23 million new jobs and a incomes were up and poverty was down, and our deficit had turned into a surplus. so wisconsin, we know what ideas work. we know our ideas work. and we know that their ideas don't work. we know it. and the reason we know it is we just tried it a few years ago. after bill clinton was out of office, they tried their ideas. we tried giving big tax cuts to the wealthiest americans. we tried giving insurance companies and wall street a free rein to do whatever they play. what we got is falling incomes, record deficits, slowest job growth in 50 years and an economic crisis that we're still cleaning our way out of. so -- so we know what works and we know what doesn't. and governor romney now is a very talented salesman. so in this campaign, he is trying as hard as he can to r
and i'll play sound a little later of bill clinton in minnesota, but the reality in the minds of voters before sandy we were talking 3 to 5% of the undecided population out there. many others had actually put their stake in the ground and know who they are voting for. psychologically combine sandy, where does it stand? is it like christie said? >> i think to a lot of voters, especially in the states affected, virginia, maryland, pennsylvania, ohio, new hampshire shgz connecticut, in all these key states those voters aren't thinking about election day. they're worried about the impact this is having on their families and friends and communities and rightfully so. in terms when you look at it from 20,000 feet, i don't know what the good answer is. i think this freezes things in a lot of ways in terms of where we were in the election. i don't think it gives a candidate an advantage. what happens here is at some point election nearing and campaigning will begin again friday or saturday. voters will start to focus again. in terms of how it changes the race, i don't think it changes it much w
president bill clinton acknowledging this enthusiasm story line that's an undercurrent. you can't deny it. >> i'm so proud to have worked for bill clinton. can i say that on the air? >> are you angling for awe new job? >> he's not running for anything. i remember working for him. he was the same way then as he is today. he's so optimistic, but so are americans. americans are by nature optimistic he people, and that's one of the reasons why this country is so special and has on so many inonovatorinnovators. we're by nature future oriented people. president clinton himself said elections are about the future. they're about whand of future you see. what he articulates is something i think is a bonafide feeling among the democratic race. we are enthusiastic about it. you can feel it. >> he chose an interesting way to articulate it. i am far more enthusiastic about president about obama thavenlt a few years. >> anne it this endorsement by mayor bloomberg surprised everyone yesterday, citing climate change that he decided to support the president on this. let me play what's getting traction. ma
and bill clinton in florida. he was supposed to be in florida with the president. let me play what former president clinton had to say. >> i was supposed to be the warm-up man for president obama today, but that storm on the east coast had other ideas. >> but obviously the show does go on in some capacity, but talk me quickly about the perils for both of them. obviously, the president is the president. this is his responsibility, to have the concern of the american people on the forefront. what does governor romney do or say, other than this point that he's trying to be sense and pull off the campaign trail tomorrow and not today? >> it's no accident that bill clinton was in orlando. that's a key swing area right in the heart of that i-4 corridor. there was a cnn poll out today showing a 50/49 race between the two sides. pretty much a dead-even race. missing out on a day or two to get people out to the polls can really hurt both campaigns. mitt romney has to walk this fine line and so does the president not wanting to look too political in a situation like this when you could, as bill kar
president joe biden attending rallies in florida and bill clinton is in iowa for the obama campaign, of course. let's bring in the political panel. david goodfriend and rachel smelkin. thank you both for your time. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> i want to get to this poll showing the president still holding on to his lead in ohio, florida and virginia. we know that when you look at national polls, depending on which one, a different picture but it is about the battlegrounds and likely voters here. what do we make of the new polls? >> hurricane sandy introduced a massive unknown in to the final days of the race and that's the first thing. we are not yet seeing that reflikted in the polling. having said that, it looks for the president's team like they're still holding on in ohio. the margins closed there as in other battleground states but that's an all-important state for both campaigns to win this election, mitt romney is almost going to have to win ohio if not he's going to have to run the table everywhere else. this is a good piece of news for the president out of ohio today. vir
people are seeing that. >> and you mentioned florida as well. former president bill clinton making five stops, i believe, there as well. so pulling out all the big guns, if you will. yourself included on that list. i'm curious, though, you talk about out west in your home state, this new romney ad. it was an unannounced ad. but basically it starts off -- it's a spanish language ad. it starts off by saying who supports barack obama? and then it goes on to show the niece of fidel castro, mariel lacaslmariela castro and shows hugo chavez when he recently said that he would vote for president obama. the obama campaign said mitt romney continues to play chavez's game, giving him the attention that he thrives on that he doesn't deserve. this ad, sir, is being described as a last-minute push to try to win over latino voters. do you believe it would be effective? >> no, it's not going to be effective because it has no factual basis. that relationship with cuba and venezuela is pretty frosty on human rights grounds, on many other grounds. my sense is that what the romney campaign is doing is tha
